“The Lapis Facial Oil from Herbivore Botanicals calms my skin like nothing else thanks to its main ingredient, blue tansy. But most of all, I love it for its hue: The deep blue color calls to mind a rare gem, or a lazy dip in the Mediterranean.”
Featured in New York Times’ 2017 Gift Guide.
With Blue Tansy as its main ingredient, Lapis All natural Facial Oil is an exotic blue oil that offers congruous hydration without clogging pores, befitting both oily and combination skin equally.
Deriving its attractive oddment name from ancient Egypt’s favorite stone, the Lapis Lazuli, this oil stands true to its name by incorporating Azulene as one of the prime components. Azulene serves as a powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent, that helps in the reduction of redness and also plays a major role in clarifying the skin’s complexion.
The other key ingredients include Kukui Nut oil, which has a very high content of linoleic acid. This absorbs deeply into skin for nourishment and hydration, striking a proper balance between sebum and oil production in the skin types that are more prone to blemishes due to their excessive oily nature. The amazing additional moisturizing capabilities can be credited to Jojoba Oil, which also has surprising structural similarities like that of our skin’s natural sebum.
The Vegetable-derived Squalane is also one of those highly impressive ingredients with stellar palliative properties, which masquerades as a light defensive cover to help retain the skin’s moisture. It also protects the skin against common problems such as premature aging and hyperpigmentation.
The application procedure is way too simple. 5–10 drops need to be applied thoroughly on to a clean, toned skin and evenly massaged throughout the applied area to help it absorb completely.
The Lapis All Natural Facial Oil is specially formulated for blemish-prone, combination and oily skin types or any skin that needs a break from inflammation.
